Jubilee Album Discography, Part 1 (1954-1955):
10-inch LPs

by David Edwards and Mike Callahan
Last update: July 28, 2012

The first Jubilee label was pink with black printing, "jubilee" in black print above the center hole. "LONG PLAYING 33 1/3 RPM MICROGROOVE RECORDING" below the logo. The second label was dark blue with silver printing, the graphics are identical to the pink label. There was also a white label with red printing (deejay copies?). The 10-inch LP series started earlier than the 12-inch series, as was the case with many labels. For a time in 1955, both series were issued, but the 10-inch series was quickly discontinued.
